"We're continuing the reform so we have dollars to put back into our neighborhoods," Faulconer said. "To pave our streets, to keep our libraries and rec centers open on nights and weekends. To put more cops on the beat, that's what I'm going to bring as mayor and I can't wait to get started."
The mayoral special election will be held on February 11th.
